Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, Dublin
The Hampton Hotel is a 24-room boutique in the pretty, residential neighborhood of Donnybrook. The exterior of the building is classic Georgian architecture, but the interior is contemporary. Rooms are spacious with a fun use of color and pattern along with flat-screen TVs, comfortable beds, and electric fireplaces. Big bathrooms are updated and some offer soaking tubs. The bar and bistro serves continental cuisine in a cozy environment, and room service is available. Another highlight of the hotel is a nightclub, Vanilla, open on weekends.
